Dumb Hack: cycle desktop background in gnomeCool little feature I wanted but didn't immediately find a solution to (it took a little googling), my Linux desktop background wallpaper now changes and cycles over random images in a specified directory. I also made a few-lines Python script to replicate the functionality of the show desktop button in Gnome's gnome-panel.
It's not very feature-complete, but it does what I wanted. For the code and further instructions, check out my repo for it.
And why all the boldness? Stupid SEO that might help someone find this.
